We found Alex Guesthouse when we were in need of a place to stay during an overnight layover from Boston to London. Just a short 10 minute shuttle ride, the friendly staff picked us up at the airport and checked us in quickly. We managed to land one of the several wooden cabins available. The cabin was clean and cozy....

This place is near the airport, which means that it is 45km from Reykjavik. That may be an advantage if you need to catch a plane first thing in the morning, but it has few other advantages. It is difficult to get to Reykjavik, and taxis are expensive. The only place to eat nearby is a hamburger joint which shares...

We had hut 11. It was incredibly windy the hut rattled a lot and there was a cold draft up the side of the bed but once the radiator had warmed it we got off to sleep and caught our flight early next day. Great for convenience (for anything more you might consider looking elsewhere but that's probably not why...

Guesthouse Alex isn't fancy, but clean and adequate. It is very close to the airport and there is a free airport shuttle. Breakfast is included and starts at 4:30 if you have an early flight. We received excellent customer service from Alex (not the eponymous Alex) at the front desk.

Stayed a night in their cottage while leaving the Iceland. Cottage has a small kitchen facility including kitchen utensils, a shower facility, a two bed facility and a small divan and small dinning table. Very nicely designed inside the room. Adjacent building is Procar office for car rental. They have free airport shuttle facility which starts from 4am. Airport is...

Booked on the day of arrival, met at the airport very late at night, checked in quickly to basic but cosy cottage. Heat on on arrival, breakfast nothing to write home about but perfect stop over accommodation at a fraction of airport hotel cost. Would stay again

Due to our travel agent we ended up here for our first night. It's a place that's like: I won't be back again! We stayed in one of the cottages and they have a very high Ikea feel, de main building has rooms and a breakfast room. Ther's a shuttle bus going every 15 mins. to the airport. We where...

My friend and I were stuck in Keflavik for several days because we fly standby. We were able to book this last minute and stayed in one of their cabins. We had an easy and free shuttle ride to the property and were cozy in the cabin/little house. Breakfast was average. My only complaint is the poor wifi reception.

Love so many things about this place. #1 thing---reasonable price! Also clean and warm and cozy with many areas to meet other travelers and chat. I love the positive messages in the artwork that are sprinkled throughout. Now---it's not perfect, but if you have just been camping all over Iceland the week before like I was and are looking for...

Our flight landed around 2am in Keflavik and we hadn't planned for a place to stay. We called around and Alex Guesthouse had a cottage available. We were just so exhausted from traveling that all we cared about was a clean place to sleep and a shower. We got a lot more than that! The awesome young man who was...
